We are continually looking for a reason to travel, so when our son suggested we meet them in London after a cruise they were finishing, we readily agreed. The trip was even expanded to include a few days in Paris. After that we were able to visit my cousin Jean Francois a second time in Dijon, and he took us on a tour of local historic chateaux. One was the home of Valbon, the famous military architect. The real surprise was being able to visit my best friend at the end of one of their cruises in Stockholm. This was a real adventure, and showed us how easy it is to get around, plus a second trip to CA, stopping in Dublin on the way home.
So London was several fun filled days seeing lots of museums, walking everywhere, occasionally the subway, but we loved it. From here we flew to Paris for a few days of introducing the boys to France. So Barrie found us another Great AirBNB in the 6th Arr. Great location for getting around, plus a few markets in the immediate area. Once again, we walked and walked which is not issue for us, but Ollie had to ride on Barrie’s shoulders for a bit. We actually entered the Louvre from the back side which was kind of nice, in that we have never seen this side.
